The Program

Employers want to hire college students who are career ready, but what exactly does that mean and when should students start to prepare?

Q-camp, first piloted in 2008, is a two-day career readiness conference designed to answer these questions.

Target audience: Business school sophomores and fall transfer juniors.

Topics include:

  • Tips and tricks for effective virtual engagement
  • Unconscious bias and its’ impact on our own personal brand
  • Naming and claiming your strengths
  • The inner view to the interview
  • One on one mock interviews with alumni and corporate partners
  • Speed networking

A limited number of students will be accepted into this program on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is strongly encouraged!

Q-camp is packed full of interactive seminars and opportunities to practice the newly introduced skills with alumni, corporate friends, and faculty. Q-camp will be held January 26-27, 2024.
